Read the sermon text: 1 Corinthians 16:1-24

Read the sermon summary: As Paul closes out his letter to the Corinthians, he wants them to remember a few things that he didn’t have time to address. This last chapter seems like a hodgepodge of instructions and reminders, but there’s one link that binds it all together… love. What is it that distinguishes the church of God from the culture around it? Love for the Lord and for one’s spiritual brothers and sisters in Christ. Love leads us to give generously, look for gospel opportunities, and submit to and recognize godly leaders. Love leads us to bear with one another in our weaknesses and support one another in our trials. Does love characterize your day to day life? How is love connection with everything you do… in your workplace, in your decision-making, in your church life, in your family life, in your neighborhood? How does Christ empower us to love through is life, death, and resurrection?

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:

At The Cross (Love Ran Red)
There's a place
Where mercy reigns and never dies
There's a place
Where streams of grace flow deep and wide
Where all the love I've ever found
Comes like a flood comes flowing down

Chorus
At the cross at the cross
I surrender my life
I'm in awe of You I'm in awe of You
Where Your love ran red and my sin washed white
I owe all to You I owe all to You
Jesus

There's a place
Where sin and shame are powerless
Where my heart
Has peace with God and forgiveness
Where all the love I've ever found
Comes like a flood comes flowing down

Here my hope is found
Here on holy ground
Here I bow down here I bow down
Here arms open wide
Here You saved my life
Here I bow down here I bow (down)
